with the pension plan either. if the citizens were create in the white house website earlier in the obama administration. i don't want to sound sin kl, but, nobody listens. you know? this -- this is one of the things that politicians that we've seen democrat politicians and republican politicians do that basically, you do to make people feel good, to give them an outlet, but they make zero difference whatsoever. i remember my late father used to get these questionnaires from the party -- he's a republican. get the questionnaires from the republican party. he fill out the reviews and all these things and i'd be home and i would say, dad, why are you wasting your time filling out this questionnaire on how you feel on issues. they don't even look at it. and both sides do it. and whether it's the signing petitions and sending him to the white house and whether it's filling out questionnaires for -- and mailing from the democratic and republican campaign committees, you -- it doesn't really do a lot. if it makes people feel better, fine. you'd be better off going to a town meeting, seeing your
the program to work. that can't happen now. so therefore obama and the executive -- >> explain why. because you can't get the votes to do anything in the senate. >> the republicans would use that as a way to obstruct. therefore, the executive branch now and the white house, they have to do a lot of this with regulations they otherwise wouldn't do. and it's like throwing gum into the works -- >> all these fixes they demand now, they had an opportunity to deliver on right after they got the first part of the health care plan through. then they came around reconciliation. they said we're not giving you a single vote. you've got to do it that way. therefore, you can't change the policy. anyway, republicans continue their efforts to undercut the president's authority by blocking two of its nominees for the supreme court. or the appellate court yesterday. the first was mel watt, the congressman, to head the federal housing finance agency. watt became the first blocked for executive appointment since 1843. the second was patricia millett to the d.c. court of appeals. i mention that republicans, th
the intelligence agencies intercepted talking points prior to moon's visit to president obama last april. the disclosure was considered an operational highlight in a top-secret report. the white house is not commenting on the article. there are reports that the administration ordered an end to surveillance of the organization. >> pakistan is re-evaluating relationships with the u.s. after the drone strike killed a top level ofcial. hakimullah mehsud was buried secretly. pakistan's ministers denounced the killing saying it sabotaged peace talks. >> efforts have been ambushed. it was not a fire from the front. it was an ambush. we see it as an ambush. >> some lawmakers went as farce as to demand u.s. supply lines into afghanistan be stopped. >> authorities filed murder charges against a man they say opened fire inside terminal 3 inside los angeles airport. officials say the shooter ignored ticket and baggage handlers, but was intent on taking out his rage on t.s.a. agents. brian rooney has more. >> the suspect paul ciancia is unresponsive and unable to talk, according to the fbi. paul cian
. >> a spying circus. the president's lowest poll numbers yet. is obama's second term slipping away? has he lost control? what will it take to get it back? this morning the only show where the white house responds. tough questions for the president's top strategist. >>> plus, republican senator rand paul in a "this week" exclusive. >>> and the analyst who nailed it in 2012, reads this year's tea leaves. nate silver makes his "this week" debut on our powerhouse roundtable. and rob lowe. this sunday morning.
into president obama's second term. we're talking about the race for president. last night new york senator chuck schumer urged hillary clinton to run for the white house, saying she'd lead his party to victory. and today new jersey governor chris christie is traveling around new jersey as he runs for re-election in what's widely seen as a test run for president himself. david gregory is moderator of "meet the press." good morning. great to see you. >> morning, lester. >> schumer in his endorsement of clinton says she has his full and unwavering support. with her his party with vanquish ted cruz, the tea party republicans in 2016. i'm curious, does this start to sound like the beginning perhaps of a series of coordinated and carefully timed endorsements to give her candidacy a ring of invincibility or inevitability? >> yeah, i think you're right. i think that's the right instinct. as i talk to supporters of hillary clinton, they're unabashed about saying that she's running. that all signs point toward it. even though there are some who still cling to the idea that she needs to be persuaded to mak
.s. national security, president obama came in hoping to repair relations with allies, this has shattered whatever progress was made. one thing that i've heard people in the white house talking about in the last few days, fascinates me. people in the intelligence world say the fourth amendment doesn't apply to foreigners. we may have privacy issues at home but overseas, different thing. they are beginning to ask whether there should be procedures for foreign nationals that minimize their personal data when the metadata they cull is collected so that there's not the -- something closer to the way we treat our own citizens. that would be a huge change and they're talking about it. >> schieffer: something we're going to be talking about for awhile both of these subjects, i think. we'll be back and talk city bout one of the most fascinating aspects and stories to come out of the assassination of john kennedy. ♪ man: [ laughs ] those look like baby steps now. but they were some pretty good moves. and the best move of all? having the right partner at my side. it's so much better that way. [
. and the court packing argument, the reverse argument is by preventing obama to appoint three additional judges on that court is almost like reverse court packing, you're preventing putting additional judges on there and that's the reverse political argument. >> what is happening, though, the white house, you look at the roll call, it is 55 yes party line, 38 no. there is an internal campaign very quiet going on looking for the five more votes to do it. some republicans are getting pressure from influential republicans within their states to see if they could get it. so in this quest -- >> who are some of the republicans there? >> i think one of the likely targets is from illinois, the home -- where i cover. a former u.s. attorney appointed by republican patrick fitzgerald has written a letter and the letter looks just all proper, very qualified, and the letter was written to senator durbin and to senator kirk. the target here is the republican. so those are examples of what the white house is also trying to do behind the scenes to, you know, you leave no stone unturned in this. it is essential
is concerned that president obama will cave on the social security consumer price index. it would definitely be a cut in benefits. this they have put the white house on notice that they are not going along with that and just reminding him he just got re-elected. they don't want to go to the polls in 2014 where you have to have the base show up and say, yeah, we just cut social security benefits. i don't think that is -- that's why there will be no grand bargain reached early next year. >> how about on the right when you stalk about potential tax cuts? what about corporate loopholes. >> corporate loopholes, but republicans are saying, listen, we are open for some taxes, but if are you going to raise taxes in one area you have to cut them in another. it has to be revenue neutral. that's the issue with tax reform which is a heavy lift, but republicans and a few democrats are working on the tax reform. that's the rub of whether you take the revenue and reduce the deficit or make it revenue neutral. >> we need something to be done, but we will believe it when we see it. >> kick the can down the r
in secrecy, and once they are completed, obama wants to rush the agreement through congress, fast-tracking, they call it, with our elected representatives given the choice only of voting it up or down. last year, over 130 members of congress asked the white house for more transparency about what's being negotiated and were essentially told to go fly a kite. you can be sure of this, however. a select group of corporate partners, companies like generax electric, goldman sachs, and pfizer, the pharmaceutical giant, are not likely to be in the dark. players like these stand to be the real beneficiaries of the agreement, because like other so-called "free trade" agreements, tpp actually will reward those at the top, even as it creates rules that will override domestic laws on the environment, workplace safety, and investment. corporate lobbyists already are lining up in washington to ram the agreement through once the white house hurries it out of the delivery room. how do we know this? because some vigilant independent watchdogs are tracking the negotiations with sources they trust, a
